Subject: RE: BS: Mudcat Recovery Ward 2019
I won a tin of Quality Street in my mum's care home raffle just before Christmas. And I mean a TIN, not one of those pathetic and shrinking supermarket plastic versions. But my sister's been down for a couple of days. She spent an hour or two with me mum on Friday, along with a large tin of Celebrations. So, on Saturday, there I was with mum as she offered me the Celebrations. Eager I was as I prised off the lid - but do you know what? There was not a single bloody Bounty or Malteser one left. Not a one. The two best ones in the box for chrissake. My sister had sat there and systematically cleared the tin of both those, and had not eaten a single one of any of the others. Unbebloodylievable! So last night I thought twice about producing the Quality Street tin. No way, Josť. It's still hidden, still intact as I speak, and my sister is now safely back in Huddersfield. Jays, she might have swiped all the Purple Ones before I got a look in!
